What comes next

Wolves, Warriors, Rhinos, ......

The team correctly guessed Rhinos as the 2012-2015 challenge cup winners.

One of the contestants was pretty switched on about RL and Victoria Coren-Mitchell was asking him at some length and finished off by saying " I could talk about rugby league all night"

She seemed genuine.

i was so shocked I started a thread about this on the main page! Even the team who got it wrong put a decent guess in.

"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

The writers say Season 2 won't be until 2018. I hope those samurais weren't the future because it would be too easy for the writers to just redo the whole story with samurai instead of cowboys.

Its already been said that it will not be Roman or Medieval world..so it could be Samurai or possibly ghost nation.

Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

How much better is Msster Chef the Pros without Greg? I don't mind him in the standard version but Monica and Marcus make a good double act.

These programmes prove that he's an unnecessary hanger-on to a programme that works perfectly well without him.

Currently enjoying the first few episodes of "The Man in the High Castle" and "Goliath" on Amazon Prime.

Goodbye old fashioned TV watching, hello Amazon Firestick!

As a former huge PKD fan I am routinely disappointed by film adaptations of his work. I started watching "....High Castle" but then I think the lawyers descended on Putlocker so I didn't get past episode 3. Even so, where was all the Japanese culture-related material that was in the book? Similarly, where was the Mercerism in Blade Runner? It was central to the book. Also, no mention of an electric sheep in the movie.

Currently watching Creature Designers: the Frankenstein Complex on Amazon Prime. A feature-length documentary about creatures/monsters and the make-up and animation that brings them to the silver screen. Very good.

They play good cop bad cop together very well, for Monica its all about the flavours being bang on otherwise you get the stern look, for Marcus its  about presentation and new thinking and he usually has something positive to say, though not always if its really bad.

 

Monica is definitely the one to be scared of.

 

Wallace has his place in the early rounds as the consumer rather than the provider opinion, but once you start hitting critics and seasoned fine diners his roll become superfluous.

Eastenders the only soap we watch and I really don't know why.

Can one of the writers not bring some joy into the lives of these desperate characters? Or how about introducing a happy couple?

Neither my wife nor myself have ever watched an episode of Eastenders and probably never will.

Apparently the series is "loosely" based on the book

A repeat of -

 

Imagine...One Night in 2012

 

A behind the scenes look at the Olympic opening ceremony.  It seems a lot long ago than it should.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

You'd definitely not want to burn the toast when making Monica beans on toast!

'Planet Earth 2' was easily the match of the first series. The film/technology advances in the decade since the original display these amazing scenes even more vividly. 

 

Now, about 'Blue Planet 2', then. Get cracking, David!

The only downside of 'Planet Earth 2' was that it was only 6 episodes, unlike the original's 11.
